    It's been 50 years since The Beach Boys released Pet Sounds, and in celebration of this momentous event, the band is releasing Pet Sounds (50th Anniversary Edition). According to Pitchfork, "It comes in multiple packages, including a deluxe collector's edition on four CD/Blu-ray discs, which is housed in a hardbound book. It features the stereo, mono, and high resolution recordings of the album, plus instrumentals, 5.1 surround mixes, session outtakes, alternate mixes, previously unreleased live tracks, and more. There are also 180-gram LP editions in both mono and stereo, plus a 2xCD version." The album will be released on June 10th via Capitol/UMe.

    Brian Wilson is marking the occasion by setting out on a massive 50th Anniversary world tour where he will be performing Pet Sounds in its entirety. 70 dates have already been confirmed and stops include the United States, Spain, Japan, Australia, and the United Kingdom. Wilson stated, "It's really been a trip to sit here and think about releasing Pet Sounds 50 years ago" … "I love performing this album with my band and look forward to playing it for fans across the world."

    The tour will be making stops at multiple festivals this spring and summer, including Austin, Texas' Levitation Festival in April and Barcelona, Spain's Primavera Festival in June. Apparently, these concerts will be the final time Brian Wilson will be playing Pet Sounds in its entirety. Pet Sounds is widely considered one of the greatest albums of all time.
